A fascinating, and disturbing, look at the death of Earth's oceans due to overfishing, pollution, and global warming. Loved the serial comic that came between the factual stuff. The typography was interesting, too. Occasionally I felt as if I was being "yelled at," with the type increasing in size in statements Kurlansky particularly wanted to emphasize, but I finally realized that was exactly what he wanted to do--yell, that is--for us all to pay attention. The book was a great partner read for Young Man and the Sea by Philbrick.
